For the past nine years, volunteers have been working on the Tanglewood Park Boardwalk project. Located in south Anchorage, Alaska this 1,400-foot boardwalk sits on a 41-acre wetlands park adjacent to Bowman Elementary School and the surrounding residential neighborhood.
The boardwalk provides a year-round walking path through various bog habitats for viewing plants and animals in the restored and natural areas of this park. Its use as an outdoor classroom is facilitated by construction of larger platforms along the route so teachers can gather groups of students for observations and discussion.
The final phase of the project was completed when students from the Student Conservation Association installed the interpretive signs for their Day of Caring in May. The eight Fiberglass Embedded Panels display information about the various animals and plants along the boardwalk as well as original student artwork from different students at Bowman Elementary.
“The finished signs are beautiful! As grant coordinator for this community volunteer boardwalk project, I wholeheartedly appreciate the professionalism and courtesy Pannier’s people have shown us throughout this entire endeavor,” said Linda Hulen, Bowman Elementary.
